Recordings in our Collection

The following are historical string quartet recordings available on CD in the Music and Performing Arts Library's collection.  They are arranged in alphabetical order by ensemble. 

In addition to these CDs, there are many more recordings available on LP and in the ASP Classical Music Library and Naxos Music Library online. In the Library catalog recordings can be found be searching for the ensemble's name as a phrase (in quotation marks). Add " and digital" to your search string for an imperfect limit to CDs (e.g., "amadeus quartet" and digital).
